Our hormones play an integral part in determining our overall health. Maintaining optimal body function and healthy-aging requires proper hormone balance.
From infancy to late adulthood, our endocrine system is in charge of secreting hormones that play key roles in supporting proper growth and development, a healthy metabolism, cellular regeneration, promoting rest and sleep, and creating a balanced internal system which allows the body to heal.
How Can Hormone Imbalances Affect Me?
Hormone balance can be altered by the complexities of our lives, our fast pace of living, the consumption of processed foods, stress, aging, and an increase in environmental toxins.
All of these stressors in both women and men can accelerate the aging process, create illness, and impact quality of life.
Hormonal imbalances commonly lead to weight gain, loss of muscle tone, fatigue, lack of motivation, depression, anxiety, immune system dysfunction, sleep changes, night sweats, bone loss, heart disease, hair loss, low libido and memory problems.
Hormone Balancing Services
In order to help patients rebalance their hormones, our doctors provide clinical analysis and hormone testing to assess hormone levels in both women and men. When assessing endocrine health, all hormones are assessed, including adrenal glands, thyroid, and male/female sex hormones. Additionally we measure hormone detox pathways to assess how the body breaks down and clears out hormones naturally.
Hormones Commonly Tested Include:
- Testosterone Free and Total
- FSH, LH
- Thyroid and Hashimoto’s
- Insulin, Leptin
- Human Growth Hormone
- Cortisol levels
Once our doctors have performed a thorough assessment of a patient’s hormone levels, we then develop an individualized treatment plan to return the patient to hormonal balance. Individualized treatment plans may incorporate:
- Dietary Changes
- Herbal, Homeopathic and Nutritional Supplementation
- Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy
- Hormone Pellet Implant Therapy
What to Expect
If natural hormone replacement therapy is needed, safety markers are assessed prior to initiating any hormone therapy.
When administering hormone replacement therapy, our doctors recommend and commonly use Pellet Implants. Pellet Implant Therapy is a safe and highly effective way to balance testosterone levels in both men and women in order to restore overall hormonal balance.
Natural hormone replacement therapy (commonly known as Bio-HRT) has many delivery methods including oral, sublingual, transdermal and through pellet implants. Treatments are individualized to match each patient’s needs.
